The No. 8 Ohio State football team gets a chance to rebound against No. 10 Michigan as the Buckeyes hope to keep their chances of playing in the Big Ten championship game alive.

“The Game” hasn’t been this much of a deal in some time, with Buckeye coaches Jim Tressel and Urban Meyer owning the Wolverines since the beginning of the 21st century. But now the Wolverines have Jim Harbaugh, and Michigan, all of a sudden, is a force to be reckoned with yet again.

With Ohio State being perceived as dysfunctional after their loss to Ohio State, some oddsmakers have made Michigan a one-point favorite. The reality is that Ohio State is the better team.
